    Have been making this for years, with a couple of changes. Can cut calories by eliminating the melted butter. Just press the crushed cookies into the pan. Top with any flavour of ice cream, with nuts being optional. Great dessert for a crowd.

    My son-in-law went crazy for this recipe! He said it was the best ever and would I make it for his birthday? Of course I will, because I'll get to eat it again also :-)
